Oh, my word!

I say this a lot, and probably more than once a day. I don’t know why, just when something is cool, funny, astounding, weird, or even when something is not good – I say, “Oh, my word!” So does my daughter. We both go around “Oh, my word – ing” all the time. haha

Is this a southern saying – I don’t know, but we’ve always said it.

Why is it we say – my word? – what is ‘my word’? Why don’t we just say what our word is? Some people say, “Oh, my stars!” That’s a good one, too.

I have too many quotation marks and dashes in the above sentences, don’t I? Not gonna change it.

I’ve heard people say, “Oh, snap!” too. What does that mean? Is snap a milder word that you can say instead of a bad one? Maybe.

Another thing I write a lot is the elongated, “Ohhhhh’. That’s when I’ve realized something – I got it – what ever it was. “Ohhhhh, yeah!”

Sometimes instead of just saying “oops” or “sorry”, you can just say, ‘Oh, no!” – or “Uh-Oh!”

**end of “Oh” post

So that was that, and I started and ended with the word, “Oh”. 🙂 Yay for bonus points!

Wishing you a fun weekend! 🙂

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Fashion

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fashion

***

Today Cee wants us to consider fashion.

It’s fun to look back at how fashions come and go over the years.

The first photos are from a coloring book I have that show fashions from the 1950s. There were lots of prints in fabrics, and women wore dresses a lot of the time. These shown have fitted tops and mid-calf poofy skirts.

 

 

***

A lot of the time people would sew their own clothes from paper patterns. I know I did. I took home making in school, where we learned to use a sewing machine, and work from these kind of patterns.

This is a photo of one of my patterns to make aprons.

A visit to an antique store had lots of old fashioned fashion clothes. I don’t know from what era these were from, but the clothes were very fancy looking. The red dress was so pretty, and the mannequin was wearing a red hat, too. Hats were very popular back then. There were many racks of fancy dresses to look at or buy.

Here With Me – Song Lyric Sunday – TV Show Songs – Roswell

For today’s SLS, Jim Adams, of “A Unique Title For Me”, has asked for songs from TV shows. Thanks, Jim!

You can find Jim’s blog at the above link, and also find out how to join in this weekly fun musical challenge. 🙂

There are so many good theme songs for TV shows! Most all are memorable if we were a fan of the shows, as we heard them every time the show was aired. Most were also easy to sing along to.

This one I chose today, is from the TV show, “Roswell”. It’s one of my favorite shows. It ran from 1999 to 2002. I bought all three seasons of the DVDs, and have watched them many times.

The story is set in modern times in Roswell, New Mexico. It’s focus is the teenagers in high school, and the ups and downs of their relationships with boyfriends and girlfriends.

However, three new students in their high school are a bit different. They are aliens from another planet. They look normal, but have things about them that make people wonder what and who they really are. They are friends with a few other regular students, and let them know their secret. A lot of the episodes are of them figuring out how to evade the government, and scientists who suspect them of being aliens, but want to do experiments, if they ever catch them.

There is a lot of drama, and also a lot of humor in these stories. I love everything about this TV series.  Hope you can watch it one day. 🙂

The theme song for all three seasons is, “Here With Me”, by Dido. It is a haunting kind of tune, especially paired with the theme of the TV show.

“Here With Me,” by Dido, was released from her album, “No Angel”, in 1999. It was written by Dido Armstrong, Pascal Gabriel, and Paul Statham, and is on the EMG label

I didn’t hear you leave
I wonder how am I still here
I don’t want to move a thing
It might change my memory

Oh I am what I am
I’ll do what I want, but I can’t hide
I won’t go, I won’t sleep
I can’t breathe, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide
I cannot be, until you’re resting here with me
I don’t want to call my friends
They might wake me from this dream
And I can’t leave this bed
Risk forgetting all that’s been

Oh I am what I am

I’ll do what I want, but I can’t hide
I won’t go, I won’t sleep

I can’t breathe, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide

I won’t go, I won’t sleep
I can’t breathe, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide
I cannot be, until you’re resting here with me
Oh I am what I am
I’ll do what I want, but I can’t hide
I won’t go, I won’t sleep
I can’t breathe, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide
I cannot be, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide
I cannot be, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t go, I won’t sleep
I can’t breathe, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide
I cannot be, until you’re resting here with me

We saw these cute little Guinea Pigs at the pet store. They were brown and white, and had a blue plastic ball to run around in. There was also a water bottle with a blue piece on it, and they had straw bedding to sit on.

This is a really cute video of a long haired white and tan Guinea Pig, and a slick shiny haired black & white one doing tricks. So cute! 🙂

This is a pretty blue & black butterfly with his wings wide open. He’s sitting on a broad green leaf.

My daughter took this photo when they went to a butterfly exhibit here in town recently.

“Butterfly”, by Aqua, is a cute little song I found. It’s by the same group that had the hit single, “Barbie Girl”. I couldn’t find much else about this song, but here is a short stanza of the lyrics:

Ay ee ay ee ay
I’m Your little butterfly
Green, black, and blue
Make the colors in the sky

Three Things Challenge The Warning

Three Things Challenge – The Warning

***

https://lightmotifs.wordpress.com/2019/06/25/three-things-challenge-pl132/

These are the prompt words for today. Thanks so much for hosting this fun challenge, Paula! 🙂

Recent prompt words:

organ, attic, watermelon

kindergarten, oak, champagne

***

They had been warned many times, but the kindergarten kids didn’t care. They thought it was just a joke, and so they kept on with their fun and games.

Every generation before them did the same, and it eventually became a yearly tradition for the town.

The Watermelon Festival was always held in the month of June, while the sun was hot, and everyone wanted a break…something fun to do.

And so they would gather under the old oak trees in the town park. The children would run and play, giggling at their elders warnings.

Soon, from the open upstairs attic window of the old mansion located there on the park grounds, the eerie organ music could be heard. It was the requiem they were waiting for…for the person who’d grown the largest watermelon.  It was time to cut them open. Those sun ripened fruits, sweet and red, and juicy begged to be eaten.

The mayor called for attention, wishing everyone a pleasant day, a profitable year, and again repeated the oft told warning.

The ceremony began with the popping of champagne corks, sparkling bubbles poured into the grown-up’s glasses, and toasts were made.

The children were given huge slices of the watermelons, and they ate, dripping juice all down their arms, with sticky smiles. The warning went unheeded.

Don’t eat the seeds! You may be the next person sacrificed for growing the largest watermelon in your stomach.
